Each piece is individually finished by hand; nothing in the store is mass produced. All artwork is printed on Epson Professional Archival Paper. This exceptional stock yields excellent color reproduction and optimum high-resolution output. Inks are archival quality Epson Ultrachrome PRO10 technology which produces a wide color gamut and creates vivid, lasting prints.
The matboard is buffered and acid-free archival quality; the foam core is acid-free; the paper is archival quality; even the paper hanging tape is archival quality. Premium archival materials are more expensive but well worth it; they won’t damage the artwork by “bleeding” into it, and the bevel edges on the matboard will not yellow over time.
If you choose the Framed and Finished option, your piece will arrive ready to hang. Acrylic glazing will be used to finish the piece. Acrylic is as transparent as the finest optical glass, with measured light transmission qualities ideally suited for framing. It's distortion free, has considerable UV protection properties, and is much more shatter resistant and lighter than glass. This both protects the artwork in transit and reduces shipping costs.
Each of the frames The Christian Gift stocks is wood. To finish each piece, a dust cover is applied on the rear of the frame to provide a final layer of protection, and guards are added to protect the wall. This is the same way a piece of wall art would be finished if you were to take it to a framing shop.
